survey says?

Clinton leads Trump by 11 points in one poll, is statistically tied in another

Two new polls released Sunday morning paint very different pictures of the presidential race. In a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump by 11 points among likely voters, a commanding advantage so close to Election Day and one significantly influenced by Trump's sexual misconduct scandal, which nearly two in three voters said was cause for concern.

By contrast, a Washington Post/ABC News poll also published Sunday saw Clinton leading Trump by just 4 percent, also among likely voters, a difference within the survey's margin of error and therefore a statistical tie. The Real Clear Politics average, which includes both polls and other recent surveys, has Clinton leading by 5.5 percent.
